koppelort n

A sailor's yarn on stilts.

After his wedding, a young sailor is called back to the ship by his companions. Saddened by the parting, his new wife dresses herself in a sailor's outfit and joins the ship's crew. Soon, she will take command of the ship and rock the sailor's world...

 

This mobile, interactive show takes the audience on a journey for hidden treasures. Stilt figures, ground characters and puppets, all aboard, sail through the city, transforming everything on their way: a street into an exotic island, a truck into a shipwreck, the center of a square into the eye of a terrible storm. With pantomime and in a state of under-water-sleep-walking, they become fishes, searching in the depths of the ocean for the beloved ones they've left behind.

 

Koppelort N uses movement and style from the silent films of the 1920s and takes it to an imaginary voyage through the ocean of sea legends.
